I didn't speak out, Emily Kneller

Poem by Emily Kneller,  Year 8

They were captured,
But I didn't speak out.
There were taken,
But I didn't speak out.
They were sold at auction,
But I didn't speak out.
They were battered and beaten,
But I didn't speak out.
They were left to die,
But I didn't speak out.
May be...if I had spoken out
I wouldn't be...

at the bottom
of

the sea.
